Home » Website Hosting
We believe that web hosting is more than just providing web space and FTP access. Our aim is to provide individuals and businesses with everything they need to express themselves on the Internet. Whatever you want to create a website for, be it a small family photo album or a full powered database-driven e-commerce website, your choice of web host is essential. The right web host will make the difference between a slow clunky site that has regular downtime and a site that is always available and blisteringly fast!

- We put you in control – We believe in developing highly automated systems to give customers complete control of their web hosting. Our web hosting control panel is one of the most advanced available today.
Our Hosting Technology
We only use Dell servers in our web hosting platform. Our platform is designed to be highly redundant, with all data stored in network disk arrays. Data is automatically synchronised between the arrays, so that in the event of an array failing, the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime. Each array is also backed up each night to a separate backup cluster, which is then written to tape and stored offsite.
We utilise uninterruptable power supplies and an n+1 generator setup to ensure constant and clean energy to our infrastructure. The data centre is protected by fire suppression, monitored by CCTV both externally and internally, has 24x7x365 onsite security and the building is surrounded by an 8ft perimeter fence.
We are automatically informed of new security patches, which are applied within 24 hours. Our own platform is scanned each month for application vulnerabilities and we use a network scanner to identify weaknesses in our network.

We believe that Web Hosting can be made far more complicated that it needs to be. That’s why we have decided to go back to basics and keep things simple with just 2 Web Hosting packages: Essential and Ultimate.
Our Essential package is more than adequate for most business needs and offers a scalable solution should you need to increase it and move to our Ultimate package. What’s more, our packages include the registration of a new .co.uk domain name or the transfer of an existing one. Other domain types can also be purchased/transferred but, may incur an additional cost.
